Do you battle ADHD? Have you ever had all these amazing plans, then told everyone about them, so there were all these enormous expectations, and then nothing about your plans were ever accomplished because you got in your own way? And then felt like a complete giant steamy piece of shit after?
Well, you’re not alone.
And do you know what the worst thing about all this is? A lot of people don’t believe that ADD or ADHD is a real thing. No one sees all the frustration that someone battling this disorder feels every day. They don’t know about the guilt. The sadness. The low self-esteem. They just don’t know.
Most people just see the mistakes and don’t truly understand that ADHD/ADD is a real disorder disrupting someone’s life. The battler doesn’t want to be this way, but a lot of people judge and think otherwise. Maybe you judging judger’s out there should ask questions to someone battling ADHD about how it runs their life, instead of assuming some of the mishaps could have been avoided. Maybe it’s time all of us sat down to talk about these issues. And perhaps we can bond over some ADHD poetry too.
This weeks edition of Bad Poetry is for all you ADHD/ADD folks out there who know what it’s like to just have things happen and the immense amount of frustration, with a dash of low self-esteem that comes with it all. Big Hugs.
